SiennaLink Remote Monitor for Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid MediaComposer and other NDI Compatible Software
Confidence Monitor Remote link for Cloud based NLEs and Remote Editing
This unique and essential tool provides the missing link for Cloud based or remote Non Linear Editing. Whilst cloud based operations provide a wealth of benefits, and with a good connection like Teradici, the editing GUI can be great, most editors are still missing that crucial - full raster, smooth frame rate confidence monitor displayed on a big screen.
Sienna's Remote Monitor fills this demand with a high performance, yet simple, and effective tool. SiennaLink protocol is based on technologies found in Sienna's industry standard Cloud for NDI along with the SRT Protocol, Remote Monitor Server downlinks the canvas output from your Premiere or MediaComposer system and delivers it to the Remote Monitor client on your remote desktop computer. A dedicated monitor window provides you with instant high quality and very low latency video, and a local NDI Stream is also generated - to feed out to an SDI output if required.
In most cases there is no need to configure firewalls at the ground based location, making setup a 1-click operation. The Remote Monitor server can also trigger a dynamic DNS update, allowing for automatic discovery of the server by the client, even when using cloud services with dynamic IP allocation.
When operating in metered bandwidth environments like AWS, RemoteMonitor sends almost no data when the Premiere NLE is in pause, saving costs on outgoing bandwidth during thinking time and coffee breaks.
The Server has a low cost license which can be opex-based and the ground based receiver app is free download for macOS, Windows & Linux - there is even an iOS version of the SiennaLink RemoteMonitor receiver app.
If you need a larger infrastructure solution for unlimited locations, and streams, take a look a look at SiennaCloud for NDI (NDI Cloud), or the other wide area network video connectivity in the Sienna ND Processing Engine

|* GOP Structure Protection : Even when bandwidth is consistently insufficient, the GOP structure will never breakup - it will just drop frames at the source before encoding|
|Systems from other vendors will break the GOP structure where bandwidth is consistently insufficient, even with reliable protocols like SRT|
